The New England area is blessed with opportunities for experiential outdoor learning. We have rivers, beaches and glacial features near to hand, just waiting for exploration. This web-enhanced course takes advantage of our local geology through a combination of web activities, in-class projects and brief lectures. Students will participate on-line through pre-class exercises and in-class activities and assessments. As a group the class will develop a shared portfolio of lesson plans and useful field projects. Teams will give a virtual field trip to the class as a final project. Field Fee may be applied.
